    create circle onto surface

    Kevin Reuss

      Hi,

       

      I am using the SelectByRay Function to get the intersection point of a line and a surface.

      Now I want to create a circle onto this surface at the intersection point.

       

      I know the intersection point in 3D space and I can select the surface with the SelectByRay function.

       

      But when trying to create a circle onto the surface with the coordinates of the intersection point, the circle appears somewhere completely different.

      So I guess I have to use local coordiantes according to the surface instead of the global coordinates, right?

       

      How can I calulate these local coordinates?

       

      best regards,

      Kevin
